Admit it -- you've wondered about that odd-looking Victorian building that you pass on the way from the Lawn to the Corner. Brooks Hall, home to the art and anthropology departments, has a lot of history behind it. Just who are those people whose names are featured on the fašade? Was the building really intended to be built at Yale? And how did it survive a 1977 Board of Visitors resolution that it be demolished? Anthropology chair Jeffrey L. Hantman penned an informative history of enigmatic Brooks Hall and posted it here.
